I worked at Reed Elsevier Group full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

They offer good benefits and (for my profession) very good compensation based on geographical location. Leadership within my group was good.

Cons

Overall company leadership was lacking. They fail to adequately value their employees. Perhaps this is just how it is with Big Business, but moral consistently dropped over the course of my 7.5 years there.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Value your people.

    Former Employee - Director in New Providence, NJ

    I worked at Reed Elsevier Group full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    the workers and managers including many executives were strong and valuable players in Internet business and marketing.

    Cons

    CEO was only focused on selling the unit. The other senior executives were strong, but were not given the freedom to grow the business for the long term.
    The division I worked had a poor business model - the model was to sell it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    don't move so quickly into a new market that you're not willing to commit time, money and resources because you played with many people's lives when the organization was closed.

    I worked at Reed Elsevier Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of resources and opportunities to learn new technologies.

    Cons

    When I was there, salary was very low (about 60% of what it should be). This doesn't matter now as the company has entered into a JV and been gutted.
